Joiners in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth is one of the largest cities in South Africa. Located in the Eastern Cape Province, it is about 770 km east of Cape Town and 1000 km south of Johannesburg. Port Elizabeth (often shortened to PE and nicknamed "The Windy City") has been laid out in a very convenient manner in the sense that everything can be reached within 15 minutes from the city’s airport.

The Port Elizabeth area provides some of the country’s most diverse combinations of vegetation types – five of South Africa’s seven terrestrial biogeographic areas are represented in the Eastern Cape. Further enhancing Port Elizabeth’s allure is the fact that the city stretches for about 16 km along Algoa Bay, ensuring The Bay is one of the most well-known spots for beach lounging and water sport activities in South Africa.

According to property24, the average estimated value of a house in PE was R1 million for April 2019. Apartments came in lower at R660 000 for the same time period, with about 22 261 being listed opposed to 60 751 houses.

What work does a Joiner do?

A professional Joiner spends quite a lot of time in workshops working with a variety of machines and hand tools. It is the responsibility of a Joiner to design, manufacture, and assemble wooden components according to the needs and specifications of a particular project or client.

Joiners are involved in the final finishing of a building, as the wooden parts are typically the last items to be installed. Thanks to in-depth training and studying, a Joiner can erect panels and picture rails, make built-in cupboards, and install carved ornamental woodwork. The work of a Joiner proceeds as per the sketches made by draughtsmen and/or Architects.

A professional Joiner may decide on the type of wood needed for a particular project. He/she then marks off, saws, and joins the relevant pieces together. As soon as the walls of a structure are high enough to support doors and window frames, they are built into openings which have been left for this specific purpose. After the frames have been installed, the doors are fitted by a Carpenter. The fitting of locks and bolts then completes the work.

Joiners may also be required to lay wood and block flooring. And according to the project at hand, they may also be tasked with fitting kitchen dressers and bathroom cabinets to walls, as well as do repairs to damaged woodwork in existing buildings.

When do you need a Joiner and when do you require a Carpenter?

It is not uncommon for trade categories to overlap when it comes to the construction / design industry – and Joiner and Carpenter is an excellent example. This results in various people surveying a problem or project at home and wondering which professional it requires. Most definitely, the two trades share many of their skills, tasks and tools, but there are also a few key differences which decide which professional will best suit a certain job.

To make it easier on you, be aware of what exactly the job entails before pitching the work to either a Joiner or Carpenter. Services such as general carpentry may be suitable for either one; others like bespoke joinery, timber-framed construction or wooden staircase design will require specific experience and equipment.

We have already established the responsibilities of a Joiner. But the easiest way to distinguish between these two professionals is to remember that a Joiner creates the components which a carpenter will then install or repair.

Unlike Joiners, Carpenters do most of their work on-site instead of in workshops, working with lighter tools and equipment. A Carpenter will be comfortable installing and repairing features of any size, ranging from staircases and door frames to roof/ceiling trusses. A Carpenter could even be hired for timber-framed construction, just like a Joiner.

However, a Carpenter can also easily be hired to help with repair and restoration work. For instance, should you need someone to revive a wooden floor or restore fitted wooden features, a Carpenter would be the better choice – a Joiner, on the other hand, would be the better alternative to creating a replacement.

What are the advantages of hiring a professional Joiner?

Thinking you can do an equally impressive job as a professional Joiner? You may want to think again…

  • A professional Joiner possesses the skills to come up with practical solutions to difficult problems. For even the most experienced DIYers, this could be a great advantage.
  • Working with wood can be dangerous. Power drills, circular saws and even the humble hammer can cause injury. With a professional Joiner in charge of that project, the risk of personal injury is cancelled out.
  • A professional Joiner will have contacts in the trade, meaning he/she can be a great source for sourcing other professionals (like Floorers, Interior Designers, etc.) to help with your project.
  • Professional Joiners can usually purchase materials in bulk, which could mean a massive saving on your side.
  • A professional Joiner will always have the necessary tools, regardless of the job at hand.
